Licensing does NOT equate to competence. Licensing means that you can and will be held liable for your actions and recommendations. Don't confuse the two. After I took my Series 7 & 66 12 years ago, almost none of it related directly to the actual job and in giving financial/investment advice. If you watch the video I posted, there's a LOT in that video that you will NOT learn in your Series 6, 7, 63, 65, or 66.
